Introduction

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine which deals with the diseases of the eye. The speciality has grown tremendously over the last few years and it is now possible to diagnose and treat a very large number of ocular diseases. Ophthalmology is one of the unique branches which has both medical and surgical aspects in patient management. Advanced equipment and refinement in surgery has enabled an eye surgeon a greater precision during surgery. Advent of lasers have revolutionised the management of posterior segment diseases, most of which can now be easily and adequately treated. The speciality is now subdivided into subspecialities taking care of cornea, lens , uvea, glaucoma, squint, oculoplasty, retina , neurophthalmology and pediatric ophthalmology for better patient care.

The department is housed in the OPD block on the second floor. It has consultants cabin and a resident cabin for examining the OPD patient. In addition there are separate rooms for refraction, perimetry, fundus fluorescein angiography and laser. The department has an Eye Bank and facilities for corneal transplantation.

The department was established in year 1997 as part of the medical college.

Post Graduation was started in the department in the year 2011 and two MS students were admitted. During the inspection in the year 2012 the seats were enhanced from 2 to 4 and thereafter every year 4 students are admitted for MS Ophthalmology course.
